series Lorenzo di Bonaventura has spoken to Deadline Hollywood
about the Transformers movies and the nature of the series' partnership with China. The article also drops a small piece of information about the number of robots we can expect to see in the film - and it's less than even 2007's Transformers
, as we all expected. But also more than two! And also, an interesting tidbit about why, exactly, Transformers is so big in China to begin with. Keep reading to see!
The speculation, though hardly doubtful, over the Sector 7 role wrestler / actor John Cena would be playing in the new Transformers Bumblebee spin-off movie has been confirmed by John himself. Posting on Twitter about his working a "A full day in Sector 7" on the set that has kept him away from his Wrestling duties.
So, yet another slice in the whatever-pie that the code named "Brighton Falls" may be. Part teen summer frenzy, part wanna-be sidekick robot coming into his own, part government anti-alien covert-operations, part why would anyone want to see this at Christmas time, with mostly everyone losing hope really fast.
Looks like actor John Cena may be playing a Sector 7 agent in the Bumblebee Brighton Fall movie that has recently began product in Los Angeles.
Thanks to a new image from Yesterday of John on set with Hailee Steinfeld, from her Instagram News account #hsteinfeldnews. We see him in a familiar uniform with what appears to be a weapon we have seen before. Shown mounted lower left, it looks like what was used to subdue and capture Bumblebee in the Transformers (2007) movie, Hrmmmm!
Thanks to a video interview posted by Ramdeen Productions, we have word from Peter Cullen himself that he be taking the helm as the voice of Optimus Prime in the 2018 Transformers Bumblebee Brighton Falls film that is production now. While is has been said the film would not feature other robots, it seems impossible to do so with ol' Prime give the boy a talkin' to at some point in the film. And where there's Autobots, there's Decepticons. Surely more bots are meets the eyes in this teen-filled Transformers movie.
Returning home from his on-location coverage of the Bumblebee movie production location in Santa Cruz, our own BaCon discovered the entry signs for a second site just north of the city. He describes it as going up a remote mountain road toward the redwood forest, and he saw riding horses being brought in, though as one would expect, access beyond the security gate was not possible. We've got a photo of the entryway below, and we'll be keeping an eye out for more from this area!
